I'm An S-Rank Behemoth Monster - Chapter 147
Chapter 147: Demon Sword of Thunder
「REAR UNIT, fire your arrows!」
Mina ordered the rear unit to act as soon as their vanguard moved. The next moment, the rear unit fired their arrows toward the enemy army’s vanguard.
「ENEMY ATTACK INCOMING! Release the power of the 〝Thunder sword〟!」
The commander of the Elebor tribe’s vanguard team screamed to his army. His subordinates raised their ominous purple swords at once. Their sword then fired purple lightning from their tips.
The numerous purple lightning bolts that were shot toward the sky created a branch-like network of lightning in the sky and shot down all the arrows fired by Horo’s army.
This left Mina at a loss for words. Right at that moment, the vanguard of both sides clashed.
Horo’s warriors screamed in pain as soon as their swords clashed with their enemy’s swords. Purple lightning was coiling around their paralyzed bodies.
The sword held by each Elebor tribe’s warrior held the power of thunder.
Horo’s warriors fell as soon as that powerful electric current ran into their bodies. Although the electric current didn’t kill them, they were left spasming on the ground, unable to continue to battle.
The same spectacle happened everywhere.
「Stella-chan, be careful of that sword, meow!」
Vulcan advised Stella while dodging the enemy attacks. The power that Belphegor had bestowed to the Elebor tribe turned out to be far more troublesome than their expectations.
Suddenly, two voices rang out near their rear guard.
Mina had snapped from her initial shock and judged that she couldn’t let this situation continue. Thus, she had deployed the middle guard.
Lily’s fairy bullet and Faeri’s branch whip pierced through their enemies.
「Their magic unit has come out! Time to use our monster unit!!」
The commander of the Elebor tribe’s vanguard shouted for the second time. Thereupon, dinosaur-type monsters, such as T-REX, charged out from the Elebor tribe’s rear line.
It seemed the Elebor tribe had tamed monsters and were using them as meat shields to protect their main force from the magic attacks.
「Using a monster, your partner, in a fight… Just how low have you fallen!」
Ciel trembled in rage when she saw the Elebor tribe using monsters in a war. She was a kind hero well known for her love forcancelingShe never used the monster that she had tamed, her partners, in a fight. That was why when she saw the Elebor tribe using their monster partners in a fight, she charged straight into the enemy’s ranks.
However, that was a correct decision.
The reason was simply that―
「FREEZE! 《CELCIUS CIRCLE》…!」
She could move into the center of the Elebor tribe’s monster unit with her movement skill, 《Eight Boat Leap》. After landing there, she invoked another skill. She stopped the monsters’ movements with her ice magic.
「Sorry for doing this! I’ll release you once the battle is over…」
Ciel spoke to the monsters with a sad expression. She shut her eyes for a moment, and then… Glare! When she opened her eyes the next moment, they radiated killing intent as she glared at the despicable tamer from the Elebor tribe.
「《Eight Boat Leap》!」
Ciel invoked her movement skill again, leaping toward the centre of the enemy’s vanguard. And just like before, she invoked another 《Celcius Circle》. Her skill turned part of the Elebor tribe’s vanguard into ice sculptures.
CRACKLE! CRACKLE! CRACKLE! CRACKLE! CRACKLE!
The frozen bodies of her enemies released lightning sparks.
The ice that encased their body crumbled down along with the crackling sound of the sparks.
「Kuh! What a troublesome sword!」
Ciel retreated with her movement skill with a vexed look on her face.
The Elebor tribe’s people who had been freed from the ice started moving again. Upon a closer look, the sword in their hand seemed to release an ominous purple light. It looked like these swords had a hidden effect of cancelling abnormal status.
That was why Ciel said that these swords were troublesome.
They were infused with a power that could only be granted by Belphegor, who had received the power from the thunder spirit Bolt.
「ENEMY FORMATION HAS CRUMBLED! Release the power of your sword at once!」
The commander of the Elebor tribe’s vanguard unit shouted again. The Elebor tribe’s people raised their swords at once.
Once again, their swords fired purple lightning bolts.
The purple lightning rang through the battlefield!
Just when everyone thought that the Horo village’s vanguard unit would be wiped out by those purple lightning bolts…
「Darkness power! Release!」
Cedric ran forward while speaking those words. He then swung his long sword, whose blade was dyed in jet-black color, to the side.
His jet black sword absorbed all the purple lightning bolts fired by the Elebor tribe’s vanguard unit.
Just like during the battle against Gyudra, Cedric used the special property of the darkness element, 〝Snatch〟, to absorb their enemy’s attacks.
「Now, have a taste of your own attacks.」
After saying that, Cedric swung his sword lightly to the side. He returned the attacks he had absorbed just now to the centre of the enemy’s vanguard unit.
The Elebor tribe’s people got a taste of their own attacks. They screamed in pain the moment their own lightning bolts zapped them.
「OUR TURN HAS COME, MEOW!」
Vulcan and Stella leapt forward while letting out war cries. They were not gonna miss that chance. They unleashed their weapons’ maximum power to annihilate the enemy’s vanguard in one go.
